Children nowadays are getting irreversible backaches because of their heavy school bags they carry daily to school. Carrying fat textbooks and several notebooks make bags heavy. Since only some portions of the textbook are taught at a time, individual topics can be published as smaller booklets. This will mean that children will only have to carry the required booklets for the topic being taught to them. Schools can also provide lockers to students where they can keep their books for the next day so that they don’t have to carry them back and forth.
